Turn Your Loops into Tracks w/ #1 Billboard Producer Tom Budin’s FL Studio Tutorial

We’re back with another FL Studio Masterclass from Australian DJ and Producer, Tom Budin. This tutorial follows on from our last video on Making A Basic Beat In FL Studio and focusses on turning your loops into finished anthems.

Tom Budin has been making huge ripples in the international dance music scenes with his blend of uplifting melodies, skittering percussion and blistering bass lines. The 23-year-old producer has racked up millions of plays worldwide and that’s no surprise judging from his stellar releases – he’s even secured a #1 on the Billboard chart. If you want to learn how to beat-make in FL Studio we’ve just launched our first ever FL Studio course. Sign up here today and load up on some incredible software discounts.

If you’ve got a killer drop and you’re trying to build a song around it, check out the video below. There’s a number of handy tips about rapidly building chords from your bass line, creating your own risers to up the tension, rounding off sounds and more.

During the video, Budin demonstrates how you can turn a simple bass line loop into a finished track. Using FL’s stamp feature he shows how you can easily transform notes into euphoric chord progressions and form the framework of your track. The Ozzie producer makes an epic future bass super-saw patch in Xfer’s Serum to level up the epic-ness before adding hats and snares to turn his chords into a euphoric build. He reveals some great tips on how to make your drop punch as hard as possible by cutting out various elements and then demonstrates how to make your own signature rises and build effects in FL Studio using the DAW’s 3x OSC.
